Media Center Awarded Advanced Certification

The West Babylon School District is proud to announce that the media centers at South Bay and Forest Avenue elementary schools were awarded the Advanced Certificate for the NOVEL NY Statewide Internet-Ready Library Framework.
The Internet-Ready Framework ensures that libraries provide continual online access to information resources for all New Yorkers. In order to obtain this certificate, wireless access must be available in the library, along with an OPAC catalog, access to databases and the ability to download streaming content. The certificate is only awarded to those libraries where staff training on the use of technology is available, and library staff members are able to provide assistance to users.
